Ferrari Is Recalling 13 SF90 Stradales Because Airbags Could Impact Child Seats
Ferrari is recalling a total of 13 SF90 Stradales sold in the U.S. over concerns the front airbag may impact a child seat, should one be installed in the passenger seat.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, this recall affects SF90 Coupes and Spiders ranging from model years 2021 to 2023. But it only affects cars optioned with medium-sized seats, hence the low volume.
Ferrari is advising affected owners not to use child seats in their 986-hp hybrid supercars until the seats are fixed. The remedy the Italian supercar company has come up with is simple: Dealers will replace the medium-sized passenger seat with an extra-large passenger seat free of charge, presumably giving the child seats enough space to avoid a direct impact with an airbag, should it deploy.
Letters notifying owners of the recall are expected to be mailed to owners on April 30. If you think your SF90 Stradale might be affected, head on over to the NHTSA's site and plug in your VIN.
